Brighton Festival Fringe Event - Press Release

Martin Jeremiah will be performing his acoustic concert “Sounds of History” at the Brighton Festival Fringe on Saturday 13th May 2006 at 7:30pm in the Tudor Room of The Old Ship Hotel, Kings Road, Brighton.

“Sounds of History” is a journey through the history of Britain and Ireland since the 16th Century in both words and music. Martin - with accompaniment from Ellen Bateson - performs a unique collection of his own original songs and includes social commentary along the way to provide a truly fascinating and interesting insight into some of our history.

Martin was described by Horsham Arts Fanfare Festival last year as “…fast emerging as one of Britain’s finest meaningful songwriters” and one of the songs in the Sounds of History collection “Sailing On”, about Irish emigration during the Great Famine, was a finalist in the Unisong International Songwriting Competition.

The Tudor Room at the Old Ship (dating back to 1554) is also a fantastic historic setting for the show.

"When Martin presents the concert you have more than you bargained for – lecture, music and lovely relaxed atmosphere as you travel through time… you hear about Cromwell; tin mines, Tolpuddle Martyrs, crofters, the cotton industry, card board city and even get a glimpse of the future…" - Robert Mayfield, Blue Flash Music Trust (On Song Review).

Tickets are £6 and £5 (concessions). Doors open at 7.15 pm. Bar service and disabled access provided. The show lasts one and a half hours plus a short interval – just right for attending the festival fireworks afterwards.

Seating is limited to 70 people so advanced tickets can be bought from the Dome Booking Office or on-line   at
